Recommended 3500lb Timbren Axle-Less System With 4 Lift Compatible With 285/70R16 Tires  


I have these timben axles. ASR3500S06 I would like to replace the spindles/hubs/brakes with the longer spindles and necessary hardware to run 285/70-R16 patterned for 16” Nissan Frontier wheels Can I do this and if so, what parts do I need?

I have a replacement option for you, but the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle - Regular Tires - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S06 are not compatible with the 4" lift wide tire spindles due to them only being found on the Heavy Duty version.

Instead you would need the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Lift Spindle - Off-Road Tires - 3,500 lbs # ASR35HDS02 which have the 4" lift and are designed for wide tires like the 285/70R16 tires you mentioned.

I was able to find that there are two different bolt patterns for Nissan Frontier wheels depending on the year. They are 6x139.7 which is 6 on 5.5", or the 6x114.3mm which is 6 on 4.5".

The only 6 lug hubs we offer for the # ASR35HDS02 are the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-9UC3-EZ which use the 6 on 5.5" bolt pattern. You will want to measure your wheels using the included diagram to confirm the bolt pattern.

For brake assemblies you would need the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-6. If your trailer does not currently have electric trailer brakes you would also need the Mounting Hardware # BRKH12, and etrailer Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit w/ Junction Box # HS381-9000.
